Tried this beer 2 years ago loved it!!!! So much that we bought the last 3 cases our distributor had last fall...Just enough of a grapefruit fruit flavor mixed with a wheat beer that the grapefruit wasn't overpowering....fruity aroma .. Very refreshing nice Amber color... My only disappointment was the availability.... Would love to be able to enjoy one on a warm summer evening!!!! REFRESHING!!!

This is hands down my favorite brew by Abita. Bright, floral, and obviously a ton of citrus are present. Pleasing aroma on pour. While it's labeled an IPA the normally hoppiness is muted by the other flavors but this is by no means a bad thing as it drastically improves the drinkability. I hate that this is only a winter seasonal beer because I would love to have this available in the summer.

As I am a Grapefruit everything addict I love this beer. Great Grapefruit smell when you pour into a glass. First sip you can taste and smell some grapefruit and the aftertaste really comes through. Not the best Grapefruit IPA but up there and a decent price.

I don't even like grapefruit that much, but the flavor works excellently in an IPA. Refreshing, and not too heavy.

Poured from bottle into pint glass.

Pours a nice thick head, light yellow, semi opaque with lots of sediment visible. Little carbonation bubbles.

Smells of sweet hops, flowers, grapefruit. Very pleasant

Taste is complex, quick bits of corn flow into hops and sweet grapefruit fighting for attention.

Feels good, light, good bite from hops at end of the sip with grapeftruit leaving a taste on the tongue.

This is nice, perfect amount of grape fruit that doesn't taste overly fruity, or artificial .

This tastes just like ruby red grapefruit juice. So good! Light and drinkable. Can't wait to get more for summer so refreshing! Their fruit beer is so real not artificial!
